In addition to Olen Burrage,
what about Richard Willis, Earl Akin, Jimmy Lee Townsend, James Harris, Jimmy Snowden, and many others?

Jimmy Snowden hmmmmm, Some how there are many of the same rumors about his involvement, it is not good to see three men die for registering people to vote.
Jimmy Snowden was convicted in 1967 on federal charges of conspiracy to deny civil rights. The denial of civil rights was the denial of the right to live for the three civil rights workers.

There is ample evidence against Jimmy Snowden and several other still living suspects.

Some of the still living people who were arrested or charged in the 1960s under federal law in connection with the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner are Olen Burrage, Richard Willis, Jimmy Snowden, Earl Akin, James Harris, and Jimmy Lee Townsend. None of them have ever been arrested or charged under state law. Why not?

There are probably scores of others still living who were accessories before the fact of the murders. Under Mississippi law that means that each one of them is complicit in the murders and is subject to being prosecuted for murder.

Did you know that the Neshoba County grand jury that voted to indict Edgar Ray "Preacher" Killen in January 2005 didn't even take a vote on whether to indict Olen Burrage or not?

Phil, your immature comment shows your true colors. Instead of "praising the Lord" that someone is not alive, YOU should Praise the Lord for forgiveness. You are the imbecile

Just as all of you retards who accuse him without any proof of any relation between him and the murders say he will be punished, you will all be punished. Especially for disrespecting a great man who had a good life and great children and grandchildren. he did nothing wrong and you all have no proof that he did so shut up and leave us all alone. And to any of you smartbutts out there who say, " how do you not hear a bulldozer when it's on your land?", well I can provide a great freakin answer; he lived nowhere near where they were buried, he had no knowledge of it, and you should all be ashamed for disrespecting the dead.
